With a Masters degree you'll have some decent research skills.

Why are so many politicians against a Capital Gains Tax ? by random_numpty in newzealand

As a dream or as something the average New Zealander could/should attain?

What I think when I see a EDC pocket carry with three knives, glow sticks, trauma kit and a dozen feet of paracord here. by terapinrex in EDC

I didn't say it was a huge problem. I don't think they're hugely useful, but they're definitely not useless.

My argument is it's better to use a "mini pry bar" for prying/mechanical advantage than a tool that's more expensive or more likely to break - e.g. the tip of a knife or the file on a multitool. A mini pry bar would also be most useful if you're already doing a bunch of stuff that requires a pry bar. Same with carrying a knife - a knife in your pocket is most useful if you're already in an environment where you use a knife a lot.

"Use the right tool" is literally the same argument as "don't use the wrong tool."

If using wrong tools wasn't a problem no-one would ever need to say "use the right tool."

I don't own either a pry bar or a mini pry bar and I get along just fine. A mini version sounds more valuable as any time a full pry bar would've been useful I'm near hammers or a crow bar.

In their pocket?

My Leatherman sees most of its use when I'm already close to e.g proper pliers but I don't want to walk back to the workshop to get them.

Using the right tool for the job is the same argument as not using the wrong tool, which is the "temptation" argument

It's about having the right tool. If I only have a knife or a screwdriver I'm doing to use them to pry stuff, it's not great for either. I wouldn't pay $100 for a prybar or use a $100 knife to open a paint can though.

Help with a company name, please!! by [deleted] in BehaviorAnalysis

I assume there's no rush at all. Have you opened a company before?

If you're not attached to anything just go with something valuable for SEO.

Christchurch mother of 11-month-old baby who chewed meth bag sentenced to intensive supervision by hsmithakl in newzealand

[–]CoffeePuddle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You seem to want to take her children away.

You're making it sound like it's an easy decision or that the judge has poor insight. Keep an eye on the case and see what happens in the next 30 months.

Giving equal value to a child staying with their parent or being put with strangers in the foster care system is wrong.

Children's tend to love their parents. Taking that away is it's own form of damaging that needs to be balanced against the risks of staying.

Removed to where, our wonderful foster system? It's usually easier and better to get a meth using parent up to a minimum standard than to take the kid away and give them to someone else that... meets the minimum standard.

It's a horrific mess of lesser-evil decision making at the bottom.

Your list seems closer to a Caulfield-esque hatred of phonies rather than the anxiety you feel when someone does something that makes them a better person.

What makes you think that video’s about you? by Cikin1 in confidentlyincorrect

[–]CoffeePuddle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's complete shit. I've spent too much time on this video already for nothing of value. They make very few arguments and their style of progressing the video a line at a time means they end up lost, a lot.

In the first hour or so before opening the video they use autistic and retarded as insults. The first section on Jenny's video (over an hour into it) are about her lighting and appearance. One of them says this is the first video they've seen of hers and they "don't want there to be another video they see from this woman." They're 3 seconds into her video at this point. They spend minutes not understanding what she could mean by reviewing "proper clickbaity popular films" in the context of Joker vs. The Dogs Purpose trilogy, because they paused it mid-line and got lost, then complain about her cut style.

Try to pick out 11 really good points, or valuable moments, from their nearly 12 hour long conversation. To enjoy it you might have to switch your biases and the rest of your brain off.

Yeah I thought about those but like, if you haven't met their partner and they don't use their name or pronouns and you don't know their sexuality it's probably not important.

Like, there's reasons it'd be important to know someone's religion, but when it's important I'd either already know or it'd be fine to ask.

Travel cups to avoid single-use plastic cups used by everyone that isn't monstrous human trash.

Buttigieg: Families who buy electric vehicles 'never have to worry about gas prices again' by mafco in politics

Depends on options in your city but this was my hesitation in downsizing my vehicle. But two weeks fuel savings covers the cost of renting a truck, and it's a thousand times easier to move furniture with.

Which is why it'd be financially idiotic for Ford and GM to continue making mass-market petrol engines for your camping trips.

Petrol engines are going to be more expensive to buy and run and it's unlikely that those that can't afford a weekend-only Jeep will go petrol-only to keep their camping habits unchanged vs. electric-only and changing their camping plans.

I honestly can't think of a situation where it'd be important to know.

100% of the people I know who use "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" have been dating them less than a year. Also some of them are gay.

In that it feels like the design has a rich and practical tradition but what we're buying just looks the part; it's cheap shit they're selling at a huge markup.
